I've knitted shawls, sweaters, hats, but never a washcloth....I guess no time like the present to change that Smiley
miss_cute_boots,
I'm impressed! I've been too intimidated to try shawls and sweaters, so I've been working on dishcloths. I really like the how quick they are, so I feel like I am accomplishing something, since I am still a pretty slow knitter.
I should warn you...these little projects get addicting! Wink

Silly question, I am getting ahead of myself, but I was wondering when our organizer intends to send out partner information. I have to go to the yarn store on Saturday and wonder if I should plan on making another trip later for this swap.

I like to knit dishclothes but, you can't get dc unless you do priority mail and it starts at 4.05. Call my cheap but that's alot to send one dishcloth! I would like to do it if it wasn't for that.

You can get DC for first class mail, too, but it has to be at least 3/4" thick, and there has to be enough room on the face of it for the DC sticker plus addresses, postage, and markings.

Generally you get you partners after the last day of sign-ups so that I may match up everyone who signed up. Wink

OK i am in, for two!

Can someone tell me a good dimension for a dishcloth?  Like, 8inx8in? 

I have been meaning to get into the swing of dishcloths again to use up some extra yarn, finally the kick in the rear I've been needing Smiley.

I think 8x8 is standard (?) but I've been wondering that, too.  Also, cotton can shrink in the wash...

Great question about the size for the cloths. Some patterns tell you specifically how many rows to knit, depending on the design. Other times I just "eyeball" it, so thanks for the tip!

maybe, too, this is something you can discuss with your swap partner?  i'm sure some people prefer larger dishcloths and some people (like myself) would prefer smaller ones that can get into little nooks.

I did the Blythe swap and used a 6x9 padded envelope and didn't have a problem using DC.
